I have been on a cleaning binge for quite a while. Actually, it’s less a binge and more a lifestyle. I am constantly vacuuming and tidying as I go. But since discovering the KonMarie method of tidying, my world has been neatly folded and placed into bins.
Since moving into our new home, I’ve been OBSESSED with cleaning it. Sometimes I basically follow the kids around the house picking up after them. Literally! It’s a sickness I think. I vacuum a couple times a day. I fluff couch pillows regularly. I rearrange counter tops. I empty the fridge. It’s simultaneously rewarding and frustrating. It will never be clean! Because we live here.
So how does one deal with that?
I’ve been into this way of keeping my home for a little while but now that this show has hit Netflix, I have a visual of what to do. I’m not a full on Konvert just yet, but I’m thisclose.
I haven’t done my closet yet but I’m really excited to dump everything out and see what Sparks Joy. KonMarie says that you should only keep things in your home that spark joy in you. There’s no reason to keep things that don’t make you happy.
Here is my recently organized linen closet. It’s not perfect but I’m lacking the boxes and bins I feel would help the situation
This is my pantry. There are 5 eaters in my house and the amount of food we go through is insane. So I feel like this is a really good start for me.
If you aren’t familiar with this concept, Marie Kondo has a book and a brand new series on Netflix on keeping a tidy home. And also, are you living under a rock? 😉
For those of you who are familiar, are on you on board with this idea of a place for everything and everything in its place?
